    Senior Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at FTI Consulting (New York, NY) in January 2010.

    Interview

    The interview went ok. The location was tough to get to. I would have liked to have more time with the interviewees and would also have liked the opportunity to show my skills and how they would've crossed over. Interview was very imformal and I never knew where I stood or what I did wrong.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at FTI Consulting in February 2011.

    Interview

    Only one fit interview - no cases or technicals. Talked about my previous internships and my accomplishments at school. Very informal and unstructured - much of it was actually informational about FTI. Just be sure to appear articulate and show a logical thought process when talking through your fit questions.

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at FTI Consulting (Cape Town (South Africa)).

    Interview

    Though they were not actively recruiting at the time, I sent through my CV and a cover letter and then followed up with a phone call. They admired my tenacity and asked me to come through for an interview. The process just involved an informal conversation with the HR management where I was asked what I understood about the company and my experience.

    Financial Enterprise Data Analytics Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Los Angeles, CA

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at FTI Consulting (Los Angeles, CA) in September 2009.

    Interview

    The interview took place on campus where I was interviewed by one of the managers. I didn't make it to the second round interviews but the first interview consisted of behavioral questions. The manager was very nice and enthusiastic and seemed like she really cared about my answers and our interview. I asked her various questions about the firm such as work culture as well as the quality of employees and she did a wonderful job in answering them. FTI is different from other consulting firms in that they're a litigation consulting firm but I have had a couple of friends who worked for FTI and have told me it was a pretty awesome consulting gig.

    Senior Managing Director Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at FTI Consulting (New York, NY) in June 2010.

    Interview

    I was contacted directly by the company and had several interviews. I found the employees of the company to be intelligent and engaged. The physical office spaces I visited were professional, albeit a bit tired. In the end, I did not choose to pursue employment with the firm because they did not have a strong enough footing in my practice area and several of my existing clients were hesitant about my going to the firm. Nevertheless, if FTI were more visible in my practice area, I likely would have tried to make the move.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at FTI Consulting.

    Interview

    On Campus Interview - very casual 2 half hour interview with directors at various offices. No case questions; this interview is purely behavioral/fit. Interview also helped clarify job function as intern since the website and description on the career site were not very clear. Would advise doing research on the company before going into the interview
